Is alcohol the biggest cause of domestic violence?

Some people believe that the use of either alcohol or other drugs is one of the biggest reasons that domestic violence takes place. The idea here is that violence is more likely when the abuser has been drinking, or that someone who may not have been violent on a normal basis can turn violent after drinking.

Plea negotiations 101

If you have been charged with a criminal offense, your first step should be to find a good attorney to take your case. This should be done as soon as possible so negotiations on your case can begin at the earliest possible time. Your attorney can start looking not only for any cracks in your case, but also for any bargaining points that can be used to convince the prosecutor that you are worth a plea negotiation. Plea bargaining can be done at almost any point in a criminal case -- at the beginning, in hearings or even between hearings.
